The Exuviance Performance Peel AP 25 contains 12 peels (a 6 week supply), which can be used up to twice a week on face, backs of hands, neck, chest and body.

The creators of the original Glycolic Acid peel introduce a high performance peel that is safe and easy to use at home. The Exuviance Performance Peel AP25 contains a 25% blend of Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs) and Polyhydroxy Acids (PHA) including Glycolic Acid, Mandelic Acid and Gluconolactone. Performance Peel AP25 not only works at skin's surface to exfoliate dead, dull surface layers, it also stimulates the process of cell renewal among all layers, to reveal fresher, healthier cells.

With regular use, up to twice a week, this peel has been clinically proven to:
  • Refine pore size and smooth texture
  • Visibly diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Improve clarity and brightness
  • Brighten and even skin tone
  • Provide an all-over healthy glow, suppleness and smoothness to skin.
First, cleanse the face with a gentle, effective cleanser such as Exuviance Purifying Cleansing Gel.
  • Apply a Step 1 Activator Pad over the entire face, avoiding eye area, lips and any area of sensitivity. Then discard pad. Carefully monitor the skin's response to the Peel by observing any redness or discomfort, including stinging, burning, itching, tightness, tingling and peeling.
  • Apply a Step 2 Neutralizer Pad to the face after 10 minutes, or sooner if you experience bothersome redness or discomfort. Apply over entire face (avoiding eyes and lips), and then rinse the face thoroughly with water.
Follow with a moisturizer such as Exuviance Evening Restorative Complex.

Precautions: The Exuviance Performance Peel AP25 may be used up to twice weekly, as tolerated by your skin. Reduce frequency of use if skin becomes uncomfortable, irritated or if bothersome peeling occurs.
Activator Pads: Aqua (Water), Mandelic Acid, Glycolic Acid, Gluconolactone, Ammonium Hydroxide, Arginine, Butylene Glycol, Glycerin, Chlorphenesin, Methylparaben, Sodium Bisulfite. Neutralizer Pads: Water, Glycerin, Propylene Glycol, Sodium Bicarbonate, Glycine, Benzalkonium Chloride.

Comments about Exuviance Performance Peel AP25:

I bought this product after not seeing results with boots no. 7 glycolic peel. I returned the boots no. 7 and purchased this one. I used it twice a week and after a couple of weeks I noticed my dark spots fading. I'm African-American with combination skin and get I mild breakouts. It made a big difference in the appearance of my skin. I would recommend this product to other women. If it doesn't work for you, you can always return it.

        This removes dead skin so that your moisturizer works better. I've been using is for several months. It says to use it twice a week, but it is pricey so I use is once a week. I like to pick the night before I have an event to attend so I look dewey and it seems to have decreased fine lines.

          Comments about Exuviance Performance Peel AP25:

          I use this once a week (sometimes twice) and have noticed a huge change in my acne scars. They have almost disappeared in some areas and have gone from big red dents to pore sized holes in others. It hasn't come quick, and it isn't cheap but my skin has changed so it's worth it.

            By Liz B

            from Montclair NJ

            Comments about Exuviance Performance Peel AP25:

            I've used it twice so far and both times I felt none of the tingling that you feel when you use a chemical peel. While this may do something for my skin it's clearly going to take a very long time. Not on par with what you would get professionally and I don't think the comparison should be made. Did make my skin softer but has done zip for acne.

            This was my first chemiCal peel and I'm hooked. But please follow the instructions closely and abort if you experience extreme discomfort. (Use the extra application to test your skin's sensitivity.)

            I use a lot of retinol products, which may have made my skin more sensitive than most, however,nothing has diminished my wrinkles and smoothed my face better than this set of six peels. I am glowing!

                A:

                No, Step 2 should be applied directly over step 1 after leaving step 1 on the face for up to 10 minutes. We recommend rinsing thoroughly after the application of step 2.

                A:

                This product is a high strength formulation that may not be suitable for those with sensitive skin requiring hypoallergenic products. For more sensitive skin, we recommend our sensitive segment of products for your antiaging and exfoliation needs.

                Apply the Step 1 Activator Pad first over your entire face, avoiding the eye area, lips and any area of sensitivity. Then wait up to ten minutes, carefully monitoring the skin's response to the Peel by observing any redness or discomfort. After up to ten minutes, apply the Step 2 Neutralizer Pad to the face and then rinse the face thoroughly with water.

            • Q:

              Can this products (and others like it) be used along with pore strips (such as biore strips)? I've used a few different extra strength peels with different combinations of acids and never had any irritation even when using up to 3x per week but I don't want to have to give up my pore strips as I haven't yet found a peel that clears my skin well enough to not need the strips.

                A:

                Yes, you should be able to continue use of pore strips while using Exuviance Performance Peel AP25. We suggest allowing approximately 48 hours between using the pore strips and applying the peel.

                A:

                Exuviance Performance Peel AP25 is an excellent option for those with oily/acne-prone skin. This formulation helps exfoliate the skin to improve clarity, refine pore size, and smooth texture. Additionally, this formulation contains Mandelic Acid which can reduce oiliness over time without over-drying the skin.
